PETITION TO OUST CHIEF JUSTICE MARAGA
The Judicial Service Commission (JSC) has received a petition seeking the removal of Chief Justice David Maraga from office over gross misconduct.
The request by Yussuf Ibrahim Dimbil, a concerned Kenyan comes barely a week after a similar one was lodged against four judges of the apex court.
Yussuf Ibrahim Dimbil says the CJ is unfit to hold office because he has made a number of mistakes.
Maraga has attended political rallies, homecoming ceremonies for politicians and on some occasions made reckless political statements without a care as to their implications to the institutional independence of the judiciary, Dimbil says.
He believes by attending political rallies the CJ violated public trust bestowed on him.
